Erection problems are common amongst men aged 40 and above, with about half of men aged 40-70 experiencing erectile dysfunction/impotence. But all is not lost as there are several remedies to treat this problem.
The most readily used treatments are tablets, which increase the blood flow to the penis. There is a choice of three tablets :- Viagra, Cialis and Levitra. Which tablet to use depends upon your requirements. Viagra is the biggest seller and cheapest. Cialis has a long term effect and can last 36 hours or more from just one tablet. There is also a version where you can take a low strength Cialis tablet every day. This tablet is of particular importance to men suffering from diabetes, as with a lower strength tablet, there are usually fewer side effects. Cialis also works the quickest taking about 30 minutes compared to Viagra and Levitra's 60 minutes. An expert in the Daily Mail rated tablets effectiveness at 8/10.
If tablets are not for you or do not work, then there is Caverject, which contains the drug Alprostadil. Caverject is an injection to treat erectile dysfunction or weak erections. It is injected into the base of the penis. Dr. Ghosh rated Caverject at 6/10.If injections make you squeamish, then you can try Muse pellets, which also contain Alprostadil. A pellet is inserted into the hole in the top of the penis using an applicator, which is provided in the pack.Muse was rated at 5/10.
These five options for erection problems are prescription only medicines, but if you do not have a prescription from your doctor, no problem, as you can take a free online consultation with our online doctor.
Dr. Ghosh also reviewed Golden Ginseng and Prelox tablets, which were rated at 2/10 and 1/10. There are other impotence treatments such as a rubber ring placed at the base of the penis (5/10), vacuum pumps (4/10), testosterone patches (7.5/10). Finally, there is the last resort of surgical treatment involving an inflatable device and pump in the scrotum, which can be quite effective and was rated at 8/10.
